The following errata report has been rejected for RFC4659,
"BGP-MPLS IP Virtual Private Network (VPN) Extension for IPv6 VPN".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=4659&eid=4087

--------------------------------------
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical

Reported by: Wesley George <wesley.george@twcable.com>;
Date Reported: 2014-08-18
Rejected by: Adrian Farrel (IESG)

Section: GLOBAL

Original Text
-------------
No "updates" metadata reference to update RFC4364

Corrected Text
--------------
This document updates RFC4364 (and associated metadata links)

Notes
-----
RFC4659 provides an extension to the standard defined in RFC4364 to add IPv6 support to a standard that was originally IPv4-only. This metadata link will make it clearer for implementers that both standards are necessary for a full implementation.
 --VERIFIER NOTES-- 
Considering the definition of "updates", the normal terms of an errata report, and the discussion on the Bess mailing list I am rejecting this. 

This should not be construed as meaning that IPv6 support is not critically important: BGP/MPLS VPNs should, of course, be fully functional in IPv6 networks.
